CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LAST 16: WHO HAS QUALIFIED AND WHEN IS THE DRAW?

After the conclusion of the UEFA Champions’ League group games, we now have a completed field of 16 teams that progressed to the knockout stage.

Thanks to Goal we take a look at everything you need to know.

WHEN IS THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LAST-16 DRAW?

The draw for the first round of the Champions League knock-out stage will take place on Monday, December 11 at noon (CET) at the UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

How does the Champions League last 16 draw work?

The draw for the last 16 of the Champions League will be a seeded draw and the winners of the eight groups will be seeded. The eight group runners-up will be unseeded.

Group winners, or seeded teams, will be away for the first-leg matches, which are scheduled for February 13/14 and 20/21, with the second-leg games due to be played on March 6/7 and 13/14.

Teams from the same group or national association cannot be drawn against one another, so, for example, Manchester United cannot be drawn against the likes of Manchester City.

However, that will change for the quarter-final draw, which will be an open draw.

WHICH TEAMS ARE IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE LAST 16?

Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Roma and Barcelona will be the seeded teams from Groups A-D, while Liverpool, Manchester City, Besiktas and Tottenham are the seeded teams from Groups E-H.

Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Juventus make for a strong unseeded line-up, and they are joined by Basel, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto.

And with Liverpool having booked their place in the knockout stage as group winners, England has become the first country to have five teams qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.
